The regular users default primary group must be staff (or equivalent) on AIX. (Cat II impact)
The /usr/lib/security/mkuser.default file contains the default primary groups for regular and admin users. Setting a system group as the regular users' primary group increases the risk that the regular users can access privileged resources.
Check the default primary group for regular users: # lssec -f /etc/security/mkuser.default -s user -a pgrp The above command should yield the following output: user pgrp=staff If the above command shows that the primary group (pgrp) is not "staff", this is a finding.
Set the default primary groups for regular to be "staff". # chsec -f /etc/security/mkuser.default -s user -a pgrp=staff
